Farah Al Qasimi (b. 1991, Abu Dhabi) is an artist working primarily with photography, video and performance, examining postcolonial structures of power, gender and taste in the Gulf Arab states. Dividing her time between Dubai and New York, she has integrated her practice as a social critique and observation of the layered aspects of each place. She studied photography and music at Yale University in 2012 and received her MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2017. Selected solo exhibitions include; Delfina Foundation, London; Plug in Institute of Contemporary Art, Winnipeg; Poltergeist, C/O Berlin; Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; The Rencontres d’Arles, Arles, France (2021); and The Third Line, Dubai. Selected group exhibitions include KADIST, Paris (2023); LA County Museum of Art; Pera Museum, Istanbul; and Lahore Biennale.
